Veteran actor Tristan Rogers chatted about the 59th anniversary of the hit ABC daytime drama “General Hospital,” and its recent 15,000th episode milestone.

On this impressive milestone, he said with a sweet laugh, “I feel old. 15,000 episodes hardly ever happen at all.”

An Emmy Award winner, Rogers shared that some of his favorite storylines over the years on “General Hospital” were the “crazy ones” that happened when he first got on the show back in 1980 and 1981. We had a lot of fun. In the later years, things have been more contained.”

On Sunday, June 26, Rogers will be a part of a virtual fan event, produced by Coastal Entertainment, titled “Toast with Tristan Rogers to General Hospital’s 59th Year.” “I am looking forward to that,” he said. “I just finished doing a Zoom event with Forbes Riley today, and that was a lot of fun. Forbes is a lovely lady.”

Studio City

In the Emmy award-winning series “Studio City,” Rogers gave a powerful performance in Season 2 as Doc. “That was great material,” Rogers said. “A lot of those scenes between myself and Sean Kanan were improv. We made them up as we went along.”

If Rogers were to have any superpower, he revealed that it would be “Xray vision.”

For Rogers, the word success really means “on with the show.”

MB ‘State of Mind’

Rogers enjoyed being a part of Maurice Benard’s MB “State of Mind” podcast on mental health. “That was a trip,” he admitted. “Maurice is a very good interviewer, he lets you know, which is what interviewing is all about. He packed a lot of topics in and I really enjoyed it.”

For his dedicated fans, Rogers expressed his gratitude. “It means a lot that the fans have stuck around. Beyond that, I come from a different era of ‘General Hospital’ and I always have that to look back on,” he concluded.
